Ectobox launches Internet of Things (IoT) service

Kevin Jones, founder of Ectobox

Ectobox, Inc., a custom software development firm specialising in the manufacturing industry, announced the launch of its Internet of Things (IoT) Business Transformation Plan for manufacturers.

By offering specialised IoT services to manufacturers, Ectobox provides a simple way for growth-minded companies to evaluate whether IoT makes sense for their operations and easily plan and implement these new solutions.

Ectobox’s IoT services provide a framework specifically designed to streamline the assessment and decision-making process around IoT initiatives. Starting with a simple checklist completed by the manufacturer, Ectobox leads each company through a process that results in IoT projects that are completed within specified time and budget parameters. Examples of IoT projects include improving business operations, using equipment more efficiently, inventing new and more useful products, and transforming companies and competition.

“Service-minded companies who want to grow and improve, to build a great business providing great products to great customers… those companies may be struggling to get there and IoT can help,” says Ectobox founder Kevin Jones. “I want them to connect with the idea that there is a solution, there is a way to get it done. They simply need to work with a company that has experience in manufacturing, software, and IoT to lead the way and help them get there.”

Ectobox’s IoT services are designed for manufacturers with annual gross revenues ranging from $20 million (€16.70 million) to $200 million (€167 million). With deep roots in the industry and an extensive custom software portfolio, Ectobox will be using IoT software platforms ThingWorx and Azure to build IoT apps for manufacturing and service operations.

“Companies thinking of implementing IoT for the first time, or companies who have tried IoT initiatives and are struggling, are good candidates for the IoT Business Transformation Program,” says Jones.
